SEVERED (Detective Jason Smith book 10)

From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new addition to the popular Detective Jason Smith series.

A student, who hasn't been seen for a while is found dead in her room. Her throat has been cut but it turns out that is not the cause of death! The post-mortem reveals that she had been drained of all her blood.
The killer has left behind no evidence and there are no clues. Is there a vampire loose in York? Then another body is found, and Smith and the team are struggling to find a link or a motive. Will this be the case that defeats the brilliant DS Smith?
How much more heartache can Jason Smith bear? Severed will take him to hell and back.

THE SETTING
At the confluence of the River Ouse and Foss, York is the traditional county town of the historic county of Yorkshire. York Minster and a variety of cultural and sporting activities make it a popular tourist destination.

THE DETECTIVE
DS Jason Smith is an Australian who was sent to York to live with his Grandmother when his sister disappeared from a beach. He has suffered many losses in his short life and is now a dedicated detective. He is a bit of a loose cannon; he has his own way of doing things that doesn't always mean following orders and procedures. However, he does get results.
What the readers are saying about SEVERED:
'It's worth picking up I really enjoyed it like I do with all these authors books. He delivers something different in his stories everytime' - Booklover Bev
'As with all the books in this series, it is well-written with skilfully created characters. The crimes are filled with red herrings and high stakes.' - Linda Strong
'A little humour here and there and a plot to keep the grey matter active.' - Misfits Farm
'Will this be one case too far and push Smith over the edge? It certainly puts his emotions under extreme duress but whether he survives physically and mentally - well you will have to read the book to find out.' Amazon Reviewer
